Tresco, UK, is the second largest island of Scilly. It offers an astonishing variety of scenery, from the rugged granite outcrops and heathland of the wild north coast, with its two ancient castles, to the magnificent shell-strewn beaches in the east and south. In the centre of the island are cottages and farmland, a shop and sub-post office, the New Inn and the Island Hotel, and the world-famous sub-tropical Abbey Gardens.
